Busy Summer Driving Season Tips

Tuesday, Jun 25th, 2013

Busy Summer Driving Season Tips - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

As the busy summer driving season begins, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) urges motorists to take simple, yet necessary, precautions to ensure vehicles are in optimal driving condition and appropriately equipped prior to taking to the road. Additionally, NHTSA advises drivers to avoid risky behaviors that could potentially place road users inside and outside of the vehicle in danger.

The website of the NHTSA offers the following safety recommendations:

For Drivers and Passengers

  • Buckle seat belts, don't drink and drive, and avoid distractions – All drivers and passengers should wear seat belts every time when traveling in a vehicle. Wearing a seat belt is one of the best defenses to prevent injury and death in a crash. Every 45 minutes someone in the United States dies in an alcohol-impaired-driving crash. Be responsible and don't drink and drive. If you plan to drink, choose a designated driver before going out. Drivers should always focus on keeping their eyes and attention on the road. According to NHTSA data from 2011, 10 percent of fatal crashes and 17 percent of injury crashes were distracted-affected. Distracted driving can be anything that pulls your attention away from driving, including cell phone use, texting while driving, eating, drinking, talking with passengers, and using in-vehicle technologies and portable electronic devices.
  • Protect child passengers – If you're traveling with children, remember the best way to protect them in the car is to put them in the right seat, at the right time, and use it the right way. All children 13 and younger should ride in the back seat. Also, to prevent injuries and deaths due to child heatstroke in hot vehicles, never leave a child unattended in a vehicle, even if the windows are partially open or the engine and air conditioning is running. Make a habit of looking in the front and back of the vehicle before locking the door and walking away.
  • Watch for motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians – Warmer weather typically attracts a greater number of motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. These roadway users are more vulnerable since they lack the protection of a car or truck, and collisions almost always result in injury.   - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Man Arrested after Expressing Anger Over Speeding Ticket

Tuesday, Jun 18th, 2013

Man Arrested after Expressing Anger Over Speeding Ticket - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

The New York Times reported a story about a man who let the court know exactly how he felt about a speeding ticket he received:

For Willian Barboza, it was speeding in the Village of Liberty in upstate New York that carried a hefty cost. But when Mr. Barboza expressed his frustration by sending a profanity-laced message when he mailed in the payment for his traffic ticket, the cost would grow to include his own personal liberty — at least for a few hours.

In a pique of anger, Mr. Barboza, 22, crossed out the town’s name, “Liberty,” and replaced it with one he thought more appropriate: “Tyranny.” He then added a vulgar little note that made it clear what he thought of the town.

Upon receiving the missive, Justice Brian P. Rourke informed Mr. Barboza that his payment had been rejected and that he would be ordered to appear in court in Liberty, two hours from his home in Connecticut.   - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

How a Typical Traffic Ticket Can Affect Your Privilege to Drive

Tuesday, Jun 11th, 2013

How a Typical Traffic Ticket Can Affect Your Privilege to Drive- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

If you start accumulating tickets for moving violations after you are licensed to drive in California, you may be considered a negligent operator and may lose your privilege to drive.

A typical speeding ticket (if cited for less than 100 miles per hour) adds one point to your record. Red light tickets, stop sign tickets, and other offenses like crossing double yellow lines, will also add one point to your record. Commercial drivers face more serious penalties because a typical ticket, like one for speeding can add one and a half points.

Most offenses that are designated as “1 point” violations will remain on a driving record for a minimum of three years from the violation date. Remember too many points can result in you losing your ability to drive, not to mention astronomical insurance rates! - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets

Speed Limit of 65 Has Not Always Been Allowed on Major California Freeways

Tuesday, Jun 04th, 2013

Speed Limit of 65 Has Not Always Been Allowed on Major California Freeways- this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.  

Speed limits have traditionally been the responsibility of the states. In the mid-1970s, however, Congress established a national maximum speed limit by withholding highway funds from states that maintained speed limits greater than 55 mph. The requirement was loosened for rural interstates in 1987 and completely repealed in 1995. As of today, many states have speed limits of 70 mph or higher on some portion of their roadway systems. (Source - website of Highway Safety Research and Communications)

According to CHP website, there have been fewer citations issued for speed violations compared to the same time frame in 1994.  - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
